UNEMPLOYMENT, HOSTILITY TOWARD POLICE BLAMED
England suffers 'worst riot'

LIVERPOOL, England (AP)-Rioting erupted for
a third consecutive night in this city's Toxteth district
yesterday, scene of street violence described as the
worst ever in England, but police said the new out-
breaks were isolated and there were no injuries or
arrests.
"We've had a small number of incidents tonight,
but they are quickly being brought under control," a
police spokesman said.
EARLIER, shopkeepers, some armed with axes
and hammers, kept vigil in the smoldering ruins of
the Toxteth district after hundreds of marauding
youths rioted during the weekend, leaving at least 186
police and "dozens" of civilians injured and 70 people
jailed.
"What is happening to our green and pleasant
land?" asked the mass circulation Sun newspaper in

yesterday morning editions after a weekend of
rioting.
Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher herself echoed
white middle-class dismay.
"MOST OF US did not think these things could hap-
pen in our country," she told reporters.
Unemployment, racial animosity and distrust of
the police are all being blamed for the third major,
eruption of violence in England in three months.
Behind it all, say observers, lies a sense of
hopelessness among the poor, the young, the
jobless-both black and white.
"These madmen want to see the blood of policemen
splattered across the streets of Liverpool," said one
resident who asked not to be named. "It is not race
hate. It is just vicious hatred of the police."
RACIAL ANIMOSITY was the major factor in

Brixton and London, but black and white youths in
Toxteth joined in hurling abuse and barrages of rocks
and gasoline bombs at the police.
"It was not a race riot," said Jack Arboine, a
leader of Toxteth's non-white community. "There
were blacks and whites together and no elements
from outside."
A POLICE SPOKESMAN said bands of looters
were arrested after eight hours of riots in which
youths smashed store windows, torched cars and
buildings and attacked police with bottles, bricks,
stones, and gasoline bombs.
For the second straight night Sunday, bands of
black and white youths rampaged through the north-
west port city, where nearly 40 percent of the residen-
ts are jobless. Witnesses said both black and white
youths took part in the attacks on police.

BEIRUT, Lebanon-Iran announced
in n the execution of 27 more "counter-
revolutionaries" yesterday and ac-
cused a 23-year-old student of planting
the bombs that killed 72 Islamic

two women were executed by firing
squads at the capital's Evin Prison
Sunday night.
y Three men were executed in the nor-

death in Tabriz, the broadcast said. All
27 were found guilty of taking up arms
against the Islamic republic and of

staging anti-government riots to
protest the ouster of liberal President
Abolhassan Bani-Sadr.
Pars quoted a statement from
Tehran's chief prosecutor saying they
belonged to Mujahedeen Khalq,
Peykar, Fedayeen Khalq and the Kur-
dish Democratid Party, the four major
groups that the government blames for
an "armed counter-revolution."
SUNDAY'S executions raised to more

activists hanged or shot since Bani-
Sadr was removed from office June 22

nment opponents to their deaths, war-

An unnamed spokesman for the
command of Iran's Revolutionary
Guard identified the bombing suspect
as Mohammad Reza Kolahi. The
spokesman said in an interview broad-
cast by Tehran Radio that Kolahi was
working for the - Islamic-Marxist
Mujahedeen Khalq and is still at large.
